Handwriting Without Tears: Strategies for Success
Handwriting Without Tears is a proven success in making legible and fluent handwriting an easy and automatic skill. Children using Handwriting Without Tears to develop their writing skills through multisensory, play-based instruction. The curriculum uses hands-on, educationally sound, explicit instruction methods to teach handwriting to students with diverse learning styles and abilities. This interactive session demonstrates an effective approach for increased legibility for print and cursive. The curriculum provides instruction through music, movement, and hands-on activities and teaches the easiest skills first, then builds on prior knowledge. The unique strategies are developmentally appropriate and encourage oral language proficiency, and fine and gross motor skills. This session also provides engaging teaching strategies for developing pencil grip, and learning letter/number formation, letter sizing, word spacing, sequencing, and sentence skills. It includes simple lesson plans that require minimal preparation time and online resources to support parents and educators.
 
Playing the Way to School Readiness with Get Set for School
 “The Get Set for School” curriculum focuses on developing key skills in readiness, writing, language, and math to help children prepare for the complex demands of kindergarten and beyond. Learn creative teaching strategies to develop your children’s physical, language, cognitive, social, and perceptual skills as they recognize and name letters using Grammy? award-winning music and Touch & Flip Cards. Engage your children as they develop fine motor skills and proper grip for drawing Mat Man? and forming letters and numbers using Wood Pieces, dough, and chalkboards. The Language & Literacy program introduces children to syllables and sounds of letters. The Numbers & Math program explores counting, shapes, patterns, and measurement. The interactive session includes music, movement, and manipulatives to develop children’s school readiness skills to form good habits that will carry over into their abilities to color, draw, count, and later as they begin to write letters and numbers.
